's targeting two major groups with this new move, women who have a strong preference for president obama in the polls and the everyday american. many of whom are likely suspicious of him right now especially considering his 47% remark and his thoughts that middle class income is about $250,000. this whole campaign switch is a sign romney knows he's in trouble and he can't depend on the debates to turn his poll numbers around. while he's not backtracking on his 47% remark, he does seem to be covering it up a bit. in a q&a session on univision he promised to be president for the 100% and to tackle illegal immigration. he says he's not in favor of mass deportation and that what he means by self-deportation is for people to decide on their own whether to go back home or enter this country legally. but when it comes to specific policy we haven't heard much from him. back with more. stay with us. action. trickle down does not work. in romney's world, cars get the elevator and the workers get the shaft. that is a whole bunch of bunk. th

talking about his policies, which basically, president obama and the minority here, even with some significant modifications to accommodate the other side are prepared to move forward on. let's really -- i think, heed the advice he gave this country six nights ago and move forward with these policies. mr. tonko: representative courtney, you talk about that event and when he made that presentation, he did a long-term review and shorter focus over the last couple of years, last term, first term of president obama. but when he talked about the track record over the last decade -- he talked about 28 years of republican leadership versus 24 years of democratic leadership, and he talked about the outcome and jobs. and said that under the republican watch, 22 million jobs were created, under the democratic watch, 42 million. he said let's look at the record. let's check the scorecard and did the short-term outcome of the president obama administration, talking about the number of jobs created and gave a zero to what the republicans were advancing in the house. it's pretty obvious that the

barack obama is now in the lead over republican mitt romney in a bran new cnn/orc poll. likely voters give the president a six-point lead, 52% to 46%. last week they were deadlocked at 48%. in a wider sampling of all registered voters, a "washington post"/abc news poll has mr. obama ahead of mr. romney 50% to 44%. >>> a scary moment during wwe's monday night raw that was a bill too real here. legendary wrestler jerry "the king" lawler collapsed during last night's live broadcast. the co-host broke the news to fans with an empty chair next to him. >> i want to preface this by saying that this is not part of tonight's entertainment. this is a real-life situation. my broadcast colleague, jerry "the king" lawler earlier on tonight collapsed, midmatch while on commentary. he was -- he fell out of his chair to the floor below. doctors were here immediately. emergency personnel would stretcher him out of the arena where he received cpr. >> lawler was rushed to the hospital. a statement on the wwe's website says he suffered a heart attack. >>> actress angelina jolie on a mission in the middle

visiting the disaster area in louisiana. mitt romney toured the damage on friday. president obama is scheduled to be there on monday. but neither is slowing their campaign down, as governor romney tries to capitalize on his convention momentum. but there's new questions this morning about that bizarre clint eastwood speech. it's "your voice, your vote." and reena ninan leads off our coverage. hi, reena. >> reporter: good morning. 66 days before the election began, team romney wasted no time. going straight to battleground states, convincing voters why there needs to be new leadership in the white house. >> governor mitt romney. >> reporter: just hours after leaving tampa, mitt romney and paul ryan hit the trail hard, driving their convention messages home. >> i want to make sure that every person in this country that wants a job can find one. >> reporter: romney, remaining positive, pushing his economic agenda. >> time to give someone new a chance. hold us accountable. >> what a great convention, huh? >> reporter: ryan, who took on president obama in his primetime speech, continue
with 400,000 kids with no place to go? but first from fox, monday night, president obama is getting a bit of a bounce in the polls after his convention. governor mitt romney top pollster calls it a sugar high that won't last. the president now has five-point lead in gallup racking poll of registered voters outside the margin of error. >>> in ohio, where the gor held a rally earlier today. carl, how is he doing in that state? it's kind of important. >> well, sure, obviously the republicans always say no republican candidate won without winning the ohio. it has seen more advertising than any other. for weeks they had a small lead in the margin, almost statistically insignificant but enough to peak through. that remains the case now with national polls showing the president an advantage. romney campaign says structurally the convention didn't change the race. there is a weak economy. incumbent with a record and channeler with -- challenger with business background that many believe has better idea to right the economy. the president has a lead in likability and favoritability, but when it co
that barack obama has had is this deep sense of ambivalence. they still like him and support him by a wide margen, but all those same polls show they are not sure they're going to get up and vote for him on election day because they have mixed feelings about his immigration policy, a policy that has torn apart hundreds of thousands of families and deported over 1.5 million people. so there was always an opening for romney and the republican party to take advantage of barack obama's support among latinos, which is an inch thick and a mile wide, but, bow, mitt romney has blown it, and he continues to blow it because he doesn't get the beat. he doesn't understand the first thing about latinos even though his dad was born in mexico. isn't that ironic? >> you know, simply put, you know, you write in your commentary that romney's comments are clearly absurd and so it's hard to take him seriously. did the rich white guy really claim to want to be latino because he thought it would help him win the presidency? well, that's strange, you write. being latino didn't seem to help bill richardson, the f
means. in president obama's fy13 budget request, 15% of the total federal budget goes to the department of defense, excluding war funding. there is an additional $88.5 billion of war funding in there as well. social security gets 23% of the federal budget and medicare gets 14%. medicaid gets 7%. 6% goes to interest on the national debt. that is actually going to explode over the next decade and by the end of the decade we will very likely be spending more on and just on the national debt than we do on defense are medicare and medicaid. and about 14% of the federal budget goes to all non-defense discretionary spending, so social security and medicare and medicaid is primarily a mandatory spending programs of talking about the discretionary part of the budget here. that gives you an idea of the order of magnitude. the big items in the federal budget, of course on one side of the equation you have got revenues and on the other side you have got the big ones that are social security, defense and medicare. those are the big one so if you want to frame this as a simple choice or a priority, i
